Creative Assembly’s latest offering in the Total War hasn’t been out a whole week yet, but it’s already broken record the franchise’s previous record for copies sold, SEGA have announced. Since Total War: Warhammer’s release last Tuesday, the publisher has stated the game has sold through more than half a million copies, confirming the fastest selling entry for the real-time strategy series. Speaking on the game’s commercial success, studio director Tim Heaton explains that “the team paid particular attention to stability and performance throughout the game’s development…”

“[We’ve] thoroughly enjoyed creating new ways to play Total War within Games Workshop’s stunning Warhammer Fantasy world. We’re very proud of it, and it’s wonderful to see the game receiving such a great reception from critics, Total War veterans and new players alike.” For those who haven’t already purchased the game, players have until midday next Tuesday, May 31 to get their hands on the Chaos Warriors Race Pack for free. The Pack adds three new, additional playable Legendary Lords to the game.
